The book was set in type by hand by Simeon Ide, William's brother, when he was 86 years old. The edition was small and copies are now extremely rare. J. G. L. [J.

      Mexico City: Imprenta de la Reforma, 1880 / 82. First edition. Mexico City: Imprenta de la Reforma, 1880 / 82/ 83. First edition. Three volumes, large quartos, pp xxxv, 515, 78, and with 67 plates; frontis., vi, 534, 7, and 70 plates; 576 (of 633), with 56 plates (of 68). Total number of plates is 193, all full-page, hors-du-texte. The first two volumes deal with Mexico City and its environs; vol. 3 deals with the rest of the country. The lithograph plates in these volumes are of very high quality, on especially thin paper used to enhance the imprint, showing everything of interest in the city at the time, along with descriptive and historical text by the author. The plates as well as the text are of great value in documenting the architectural scene in Mexico, esp. the capitol. (Even included are views of the new streetcar system that had been recently installed.) The lithographs were done by L. Garces and executed by the firm of Murguia. Mathes in his book on Mexican lithography, Mexico on Stone, pp. 41-44, calls the set: "The most important album of Mexican views of the century". Reprinted in the 1970's in a deluxe and very limited edition, the original set is extremely scarce on the market -- no complete sets have apparently ever come up at auction; OCLC notes only 6 library holdings, but with no indication of the completeness of the volumes. (Palau 270223/4) Volumes 1 and 2 are bound in red cloth over marbled boards, vol. 3 in red cloth alone. Aside from the defect noted in vol. iii, very good copies.

Publisher's de luxe binding, signed Charles Magnier at the tail of the spine, red hard-grained morocco, matching red cloth boards, title gilt to spine with ornate Islamic-style panels, boards similarly elaborately blocked in black and gold, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispiece and numerous other engraved illustrations, many full-page, 4 full-page maps, one in colour. A little chafed on the cords, and at the head and tail of the spine, corners a little bumped, some foxing as usual, remains very good. First edition. Marie Ujfalvy-Bourdon was the French-born wife of the Hungarian ethnographer and linguist Károly Jeno Ujfalvy, professor of Central Asian Geography and History at the École des langues orientales vivantes in Paris, and in 1876 she accompanied him on his expedition, which was sponsored by the Ministère d'Instruction publique et des beaux arts, through Central Asia, producing on her own behalf this handsome, and well-illustrated popular account. Their route took them through most of the former khanates of Central Asia, just recently absorbed into Russian Turkistan - Tashkent, Samarkand, Ferghana, Kokand, and Kuldja - before visiting Omsk in Siberia and returning to Moscow via the Urals. The superb binding was designed and executed by Charles Magnier who became renowned for his edition bindings at this high point for French book production.

        Nineteenth-Century American Kindergarten Embroidery Album

      [United States], 1880. Nineteenth-century American embroidery album, featuring scores of colorful patterns and figures executed on cardstock. In the 1830s, German educator Friedrich Froebel developed his original "system of kindergarten," a revolutionary program for children that emphasized spatial literacy and graphic design. The "Froebel gifts" were a series of twenty interactive toys, including building blocks, origami papers, modeling clay, and embroidered cards like the ones collected in this album. Milton Bradley & Company, which offered the toys for sale in the United States, featured embroidery kits as "the twelfth gift" in their 1873-1874 catalog: "The embroidering is done with needles and colored silks and worsted on paper. . . . the pupils produce, in course of time, the most beautiful representations of natural and artificial objects -- mute, eloquent tokens of an early acquired taste in regard to form and color, and of manual dexterity and skill rarely witnessed in children of such tender age." The format of this unsigned and undated album corresponds directly to surviving nineteenth-century American examples, such as Philadelphia kindergarten teacher Lettie Allen's 1880 embroidery album (Institute for Figuring, Los Angeles). Frobel's emphasis on line, form, and pattern as basic elements of thought anticipated the modernist turn to abstraction: "With their pages of multicolored 'letters' forming words in no known tongue, the books passed down through the families of nineteenth-century kindergarteners are like mysterious Bibles" (Inventing Kindergarten, 76). A near-fine survival. Oblong concertina album, measuring 9.5 x 11.25 inches, 16 panels. Original black textured cloth ruled in blind, titled "Sewing" in gilt to upper board, black ribbon ties. 64 embroidery patterns and figures worked in colored thread on ivory cards, each card measuring 3.75 x 4.5 inches, mounted four cards to a panel. Light shelfwear to album, ribbon ties frayed, crease to edge of panel 15 (not affecting sewing).

        A Series of Picturesque Seats of the noblemen and gentlemen of Great Britain and Ireland. With descriptive and historical letterpress.

      London: William Mackenzie, [1880] - Quarto, 6 volumes. Publisher's full red morocco, extra gilt on spine and boards, raised bands, marbled endpapers, roll to turn-ins, gilt edges. Some occasional light foxing, an unusually bright set in excellent condition. Coloured woodblock vignette title pages, 240 coloured woodblock plates (heightened with gum arabic) by Alexander Francis Lydon, printed by Benjamin Fawcett. First edition in book form; "the book's publishing history is complicated. It is described as having been issued in parts between 1864 and 1880, but selections from it like The Ancestral Homes of Britain of 1868 also appeared during this period" (Ray). Morris's Seats offers an unparalleled survey of British and Irish country houses in their late Victorian heyday, Lydon's superbly detailed and carefully composed plates - projecting an image of supremely placid and untroubled estates - were printed with considerable subtlety by Benjamin Fawcett, "the leading provincial colour printer of the age" (ibid).

        In Zululand with the British Throughout the War of 1879.

      London: W. H. Allen & Co., 1880 - Octavo. Original diagonal-ribbed green cloth, title gilt to spine, decorative friezes in gilt to head and foot, extending over boards in blind, gilt block of three assegais to front, brown coated endpapers. Extremities very lightly bumped, a few short nicks to spine-ends, inner hinges very slightly tender, foxing to frontispiece, title page, the mount of the Frere portrait and facing leaf, and the folding map, short closed tear to map stub and one fold partially split. A very good copy. Tinted photogravure portrait frontispiece of Chelmsford, one similar plate, mounted photograph of Sir Bartle Frere, wood-engraved portrait of Cetywayo (Mendelssohn: "very dissimilar to the majority of other delineations of the Zulu king"), 8 folding plans, large folding military map to rear. First edition of this "especially vivid and insightful" eyewitness account (Raugh). The author was "well acquainted with the country and had a good knowledge of the natives and their language and customs" (Mendelssohn). He was the only correspondent in the country at the outbreak of hostilities and immediately immersed himself in the action: "With the Central Column rode Charles L. Norris-Newman, a retired Army Captain, known to his close friends as 'Noggs'. In the tradition of keen special correspondents, Norris-Newman was the first white man to splash across the river and set foot in Zululand. He represented the Natal Times and the London Standard and had attached himself to the staff of Commandant Lonsdale of the Natal Native Contingent and sported their badge, a twisted piece of red cloth tucked in the loose muslin band that encircled his sun helmet" (Wilkinson-Latham, cited after Roth and Olson, Historical Dictionary of War Journalism, pp. 220-1). The appendices include the list of officers and men killed at Isandhlwana, the official report of the defence of Rorke's Drift, and the proceedings of the court martial on Lieutenant Cary in connection with the death of the Prince Imperial. Mendelssohn II p. 98; Raugh 148. [Attributes: First Edition]

Original diagonal-ribbed green cloth, title gilt to spine, decorative friezes in gilt to head and foot, extending over boards in blind, gilt block of three assegais to front, brown coated endpapers. Tinted photogravure portrait frontispiece of Chelmsford, one similar plate, mounted photograph of Sir Bartle Frere, wood-engraved portrait of Cetywayo (Mendelssohn: "very dissimilar to the majority of other delineations of the Zulu king"), 8 folding plans, large folding military map to rear.

A very good copy. First edition of this "especially vivid and insightful" eyewitness account (Raugh). The author was "well acquainted with the country and had a good knowledge of the natives and their language and customs" (Mendelssohn). He was the only correspondent in the country at the outbreak of hostilities and immediately immersed himself in the action: "With the Central Column rode Charles L. Norris-Newman, a retired Army Captain, known to his close friends as 'Noggs'. In the tradition of keen special correspondents, Norris-Newman was the first white man to splash across the river and set foot in Zululand. He represented the Natal Times and the London Standard and had attached himself to the staff of Commandant Lonsdale of the Natal Native Contingent and sported their badge, a twisted piece of red cloth tucked in the loose muslin band that encircled his sun helmet" (Wilkinson-Latham, cited after Roth and Olson, Historical Dictionary of War Journalism, pp. 220-1). The appendices include the list of officers and men killed at Isandhlwana, the official report of the defence of Rorke's Drift, and the proceedings of the court martial on Lieutenant Cary in connection with the death of the Prince Imperial.

        Marc, Franz] Bookplate by Franz Marc for Himself

      - Early graphic work by Franz Marc (February 8, 1880 – March 4, 1916) noted German painter and printmaker, one of the key figures of the German Expressionist movement. He was a founding member of Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), a journal whose name later became synonymous with the circle of artists collaborating in it. A strikingly Art Nouveau image, on white handmade paper, in 1904 (image size slightly less than 3 x 3 inches). still quite objective and arrested in Art Nouveau. On verso of bookplate is the printer stamp, SH. This comes from the estate of a printer of the Steglitzer Werkstatte, where Marc had at least this (and the example following) ex-libris bookplate printed. The printer was founded in 1900 by Fritz Helmuth Ehmcke, Friedrich Wilhelm Kleukens and Georg Belwe. Fine. Most scarce.

        The Power of Movement in Plants

      London: John Murray,, 1880. With illustrations. Second Thousand. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt and with gilt decorative border at ends, covers blindstamped, brown coated endpapers. With the publisher's 32-page catalogue, dated January 1882, to the rear. With 196 woodcuts in the text. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedown. Minor rubbing to extremities, crease in cloth to front cover, tiny mark to rear cover, edges lightly soiled, short scratch to front pastedown; a very good, largely unopened copy, with a couple of gatherings to the rear clumsily opened. First edition, second issue, released in the same year as the first issue. The collaborative authorship proclaimed on the title page reflects Darwin's concern to introduce his children into the world of science. Francis Darwin had trained as a doctor but turned from medicine to botany, initially working as secretary and assistant to his father. In 1876 he had been for some months at the University of Würzburg, learning laboratory methods from Julius Sachs. "The book was an extension of Charles Darwin's work on climbing plants and it showed that the same mechanisms can be observed in plants in general. By extending the idea of irregular circumnutation the Darwins analysed the growth movement of plants in response to factors of the environment such as light, gravity, and wounds. In addition, they demonstrated that the mechanism of curvature in both roots and shoots was the result of differential growth rates. They could also confirm that the effect of the stimuli on the growth movement was indirect and that light and gravity act on some substance in the tip of the root and the shoot, which is transmitted to other parts of the plant. Francis Darwin later refined some of the experimental techniques and modified their theoretical conclusions" (ODNB).

        Das neue Dampf-Fortbewegungs-System erfunden von Amadeus Bollée in Le Mans.

      Berlin, Druck von Rudolf Mosse, October 1880, 8, 14, (2) pp., 1 ganzseitiger Holzschnitt, orig. Broschur in feinem marmorierten Pappband. Erstdruck "Das neue Dampf-Fortbewegungs-System erfunden von Amadeus Bollée in Le Mans. In all seinen Theilen geschützt durch Deutsches Reichs-Patent. In Deutschland eingeführt von Gebrüder Arons, Banquiers zu Berlin, und der F. Wöhlert'schen Maschinenbau-Anstalt und Eissengiesserei, Actiengesellschaft zu Berlin. Berlin, October 1880.""Die F. Wöhlert'sche Maschinenbau-Anstalt und Eisengiesserei Actien-Gesellschaft war ein bedeutender Hersteller von Lokomotiven, Werkzeugmaschinen, Eisengusswaren, landwirtschaftlichem Gerät, Dampfwagen und Eisenkonstruktionen im 19. Jahrhundert. Das Unternehmen ging aus der F. Wöhlert'schen Maschinenbau-Anstalt hervor.""Dampfwagen Lizenz Amédée Bollée père - Zu den erwähnten Versuchen, das Unternehmen durch Diversifizierung aufzufangen, gehörten die 1879 aufgenommene Herstellung von landwirtschaftlichen Gerätschaften und, bereits ab 1878, Versuche mit schienenlosen Dampfwagen, die in Lizenz nachgebaut werden sollten. Ab spätestens 1879 experimentierte man bei Wöhlert mit Wagen des französischen Dampfpioniers Amédée-Ernest Bollée (1844-1917).Im Oktober 1875 hatte Bollée Vater mit der Fahrt der L'Obéissante ("die Gehorsame"), dem ersten von ihm gebauten Dampfwagen, von Le Mans nach Paris beträchtliches Aufsehen erregt. Für diese Strecke von etwa 210 km hatte er nur 18 Stunden benötigt. Bollée lernte in Paris den Ingenieur Léon Le Cordier kennen. Es kam zu einer geschäftlichen Beziehung Le Cordier erwarb für seine Société Fondatrice die Nutzungsrechte am Antrieb der L'Obéissante für die meisten kontinentaleuropäischen Staaten. Dazu knüpfte er Kontakte zur Österreichisch-Ungarischen Monarchie. Amédée Bollée führte seine Dampfdroschke sogar Kaiser Franz Joseph (1830-1916) samt Hofstaat vor. Trotz eines triumphalen Erfolgs der Werbeveranstaltung in Wien blieb eine Vermarktung aus. Es ergaben sich indes über den Berliner Geschäftsmann Berthold Arons aus der bekannten Bankiersfamilie Arons neue Möglichkeiten im Königreich Preußen. Im August 1880 reiste Le Cordier mit zwei Dampfwagen nach Berlin. Dabei handelte es sich einerseits um die sechssitzige, offene La Mancelle ("die aus Le Mans") und eine schwere Zugmaschine mit sowohl zivilen wie auch militärischem Einsatzmöglichkeiten, genannt L'Élisabeth. Es folgte eine Reihe von erfolgreichen Vorführungen vor großem Publikum samt Mitgliedern der kaiserlichen Familie. Bereits im September wurde zwischen Wöhlert, Le Cordiers Société Fondatrice und dem Privatbankhaus Gebrüder Arons eine Vereinbarung unterzeichnet, welche die Entwicklung von Dampfwagen unter Verwendung der Bollée-Patente zum Zweck hatte. Hauptziel war es, Omnibusse für Fernverbindungen von Berlin zu Metropolen im Osten zu entwickeln. Es ist anzunehmen, dass die Zugmaschine L'Élisabeth entsprechend weiterentwickelt werden sollte.Berthold Arons und Le Cordier gründeten außerdem die Centrale Dampfwagengesellschaft, welche weitere Bollée-Patente in Deutschland, Russland und anderen europäischen Staaten auswerten sollte. Angedacht war auch der Betrieb von Mietdroschken mit Dampfantrieb. Die "Bollée-Wöhlert Dampf-Kraftdroschke" war ein Nachbau von Bollées La Mancelle, die dieser unabhängig davon weiterhin in Frankreich und dem Vereinigten Königreich anbieten wollte und deshalb die Nutzungsrechte für diese Staaten zurückbehalten hatte. Ein Verkaufskatalog von 1881 mit dem Titel Das Neue Dampf-Fortbewegungs-System, Erfunden Von Amadeus Bollee in Le Mans erwähnt die Einführung des Fahrzeugs durch Gebrüder Arons, Banquiers Zu Berlin und die Wohlert'sche Maschinenbau-Anstalt. Die Existenz dieses Katalogs legt nahe, dass nicht nur eine Produktion im Auftrag der Centralen Dampfwagengesellschaft angedacht war, sondern dass die Dampfdroschke auch auf den freien Markt gelangen sollte.Die Wöhlert-Dampfdroschke war ein Lizenz-Nachbau der La Mancelle. Das Fahrzeug hatte einen mit Kohle befeuerten, stehenden Kessel mit einem Stand für den Heizer ("Chauffeur") im Heck. Die Maschine war, wahrscheinlich erstmals in der Geschichte des Automobils, vorne unter einer Haube untergebracht. Eine sehr moderne Lösung war die Kraftübertragung mittels Kardanwelle von der Maschine zum mittig angebrachten Differential. Von da wurde sie über zwei Ketten an die Hinterräder weitergegeben. Die Verwendung einer Kardanwelle ist wahrscheinlich ebenfalls erstmalig im Motorfahrzeugbau, die Anordnung nimmt das von Émile Levassor entwickelte "Système Panhard" um über zehn Jahre vorweg. Die Droschke war durch deutsche Reichspatente geschützt. Die Achsfolge war 1'A n2t.Bollée selber baute rund 50 Exemplare seiner Mancelle, weshalb diese auch als erstes Serienauto betrachtet werden kann. Das Fahrzeug war als Sechssitzer konzipiert und konnte mit einem offenen Aufbau als Kalesche oder halboffen als Postchaise bestellt werden letztere ähnelte einem Landaulet.Zufolge einer Theorie können möglicherweise 16 bislang nicht mit Fahrzeugen belegte Fabriknummern (712 bis 727) solchen Wöhlert-Bollée Dampfdroschken mit der genannten Achsfolge zugeordnet werden dies gilt aber nicht als erwiesen."
